Mimicking Birds - "Walking in the Air"

I still discover music that is a year or two old that I either missed or just never got around to hitting play. The music of Mimicking Birds is one of those quality bands that seem to have gone under a lot of peoples radar, which is not good because this band is great. The Portland trio make a soothing sound of folk/pop and "Walking in the Air" is a testament to that sound. They recorded their debut album back in 2009 with Isaac Brock, the Modest Mouse frontman, in his home studio. If you got a chance to see Modest Mouse back then, this band will be familiar as they were on tour with them.

Their self titled album came out in March 2010, but still should be an album you turn too. If you like Fleet Foxes, Iron & Wine, and Modest Mouse, this should be something that is perfect for your years. You can buy the album on iTunes here.

About the song "Walking in the Air" via their Bandcamp:
Mimicking Birds' interpretation of "Walking in the Air" from "The Snowman." A children's book by English author Raymond Briggs, published in 1978 and made into a 26-minute animated movie by Dianne Jackson in 1982.
